Re: Slowdown after update on Win32 (XP Home)

I'm seeing a painfully noticeable slowdown on my system. I must have
contracted this slowdown last week. My Cygwin is up to date as of now,
October 1st, 01:00 CET

Starting a MinTTY (or rxvt, for that matter) from the icon I've placed
in the start menu does not take the usual two or three seconds, but may
take as much as a whole minute. During this startup attempt phase, I can
see various bash processes with different PIDs bubbling to the top in
taskmgr. I've seen up to three of them at the same time when my MinTTY
was trying to start as the first Cygwin process, so there should have
been no other bash processes around.

This is Win32, XP Home SP3.

I hope this description is helpful in debugging this issue.

Could you provide the information requested by the problem reporting guidelines: <>

My WAG is you're suffering from changes in the new version of
bash_completion.  If you don't use this, uninstall it.
